    If you use either the install DVD or the net install CD, there should be an upgrade option. I don't think you can upgrade with the live CD, though you can do a clean install.

    Personally, I always do a clean install to a new version, but I keep (and do not reformat) my "/home" partition which has most of my personalization.

    don't know about "on linux" as that is a huge subject (i have no idea
    how Red Hat, Debian, etc etc etc do it), but for openSUSE these two
    should cover it:

    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade
    and
    http://doc.opensuse.org/products/ope...ha.update.html

    but, you can also find dozens and dozens of questions/answers in these
    fora via google or the forums advanced search page..

    however, some folks always backup the data and do a format/clean
    install when moving from one version to the next....i've always done
    that in the past, but there are others that use the above upgrade paths..

    whichever you choose, it is always best to begin with a backup of all
    your data, because a fat finger mistake (or power fail) _can_ take it
    all away...

    Open the Yast (Start menu -> Software (Software) -> Software Sources (Software repositories)

    The category of software repositories, select all sources of 11.2 (11.3,11.4 etc) and disable them. That happens if you select them all and click the Enabled (On) that are not enabled. Click OK when finished.

    After open terminal and type the following

    Code:
    su
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -f http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.3/ "openSUSE 11.3 Updates"
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -f http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/oss/ "openSUSE Factory Oss"
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo –f http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/non-oss “openSUSE Non-oss”
    Then upgrade
    Code:
    # zypper dup --from "openSUSE 11.3 Updates" --from "openSUSE Factory Oss" --from “openSUSE Non-oss”
    or

    Code:
    su -c "zypper dup"
    That's all!!!

    Warning You must find repositories of 11.4 first. This is the technique of upgrading.

    I do the full backup, then upgrade. Actually, I recommend to do a full
    backup before doing any of the possibilities, fresh install or upgrade, by
    any method. Better waste work, than be sorry later.

    Thanks to the developers for a new 11.4 and also to sailors like others to prevent upgrade shipwreck:
    The last comd does'nt work for me but before doing "zypper dup" I had to do a "zypper up rpm".

    This worked for me!!

    And thanks.

    I've just renamed 11.3 to 11.4 in the code of post #4 and made this:
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper in rpm
    sudo zypper in zypper
    sudo zypper dist-upgrade
    I'm currently updating my system, the result will be later. Wish me luck!

    Opps spoke too soon - now there is NO Panels and NO taskbars on rebooting. Tried typing gnone-panel or kicker & but nothing. Everything else seems to work on the desktop - right-cliking changes background, etc. Help!!
